Oh, sweet Avelin - how wonderful to meet you and your beautiful family! When mom, Noona, contacted me about a newborn session for her baby girl, Avelin had already arrived. She was just over 4 weeks old when we were able to schedule her session and absolutely gorgeous! When I arrived to their home, we began the session with family photos in Avelin's nursery. Her parents created a beautiful space for their baby girl, complete with vintage floral prints and shabby chic details. The light fixture was absolutely stunning! Big brother Elliot was very excited and was more than happy to snuggle up with his mama, daddy and baby sister. Elliot was so sweet with little Avie and I loved how gentle he was as he cuddled up with her and held her hands. After taking some family photos and individual photos of Avie with her mom, dad and big brother, I then took some lifestyle images of Avelin in her nursery. She was awake by this time so I was able to capture some images of her in her crib while she was more alert and interactive.
After a quick feeding and snuggle time with mama, we were ready to set up for Avelin's posed newborn photos. Noona shared that she wanted to use neutral tones and various shades of pinks in the set ups, which would coordinate with her nursery decor. She also had a white and pink floral wrap and headband that she wanted to use so we started with Avelin wrapped in the swaddle lying on a soft fur blanket. This is where I captured a beautiful little smile as she settled into the wrap and furry blanket. Little Avelin appeared to be most comfortable when she was swaddled and cozy, so we kept her wrapped or covered throughout the session. Her full head of thick, dark hair stood out and looked beautiful against the neutral and light colored blankets we selected for her photos. And I loved how her little toes and fingers showed with each wrap, displaying those tiny little features and details that we love so much about newborns. I thoroughly enjoyed photographing sweet Avelin and getting to know her kind, friendly and funny family!
